How to get the perfect Black Glossy Lip: Review & Swatches PART 2

Here are some other ways to get black glossy lips if you don't have any black lipgloss around. With Part 2 of the video I'll show you a review with hand and lip swatches plus my thoughts and some extra tips.

Some other tips...
With a translucent black lip gloss or one that isn’t opaque enough for what you want, you can apply it over a coloured lipstick to darken the colour. For example you could add a light black lipgloss over a lipstick for a vamped up lip.

It also works the other way, you can dab on the lipgloss lightly and make a highly pigmented lipgloss give softer effect. Check out this lip tutorial where I lightly used the Illamasqua Intense gloss for a darkened berry kinda lip here.

Also you can mix a loose black eyeshadow with the non-pigmented black gloss and make it more opaque and as dark as you like. And you can even add some sparkle to it. If you mix Stella loose chromalust pigment from Sugarpill Cosmetics you could add some darkness and also some light glitter throughout your custom lipgloss.
